Are you still seeing this with the current packages?
it's fixed in kdelib/kdebase 3.0.3-6 or newer
After specifying a host and port, I am presented with the "Remote IPP printer
selection" screen. There are no printers listed, and clicking <next> tells me
that I need to select a printer to proceed.
(Then again, I have never used this tool, so I might be doing something wrong)
FWIW, I was able to add a cups printer w/ cupsconfig:
HP LaserJet Series Cups v1.1
I really suspect a problem with the general usability of kprinter in that
respect to be honest.
You're doing everything right (i tried it too), but i can configure printers now
fine with the tool (although not very intuitively) without it crashing.
So i'm closing this bug as kprinter really doesn't crash anymore. :-)
Read ya, Phil
